Visit our site

The Metal Museum is the only museum in the United States dedicated to preserving, promoting, and advancing the art and craft of fine metalwork. This is achieved through four interrelated programming areas - rotating exhibitions of historic and contemporary metalwork; the Permanent Collection of objects, books, folios, and archives; the Metals Studios comprised of a Blacksmith Shop, Foundry, small metals lab, and design lab that provide educational opportunities for metalsmiths through artistic creation; and vibrant community education and engagement programming for learners of all ages. Wander the Sculpture Garden during your visit and enjoy one of the best views of the Mississippi River from the gazebo on the Museum's bluff campus.
